Virtue & Virility

by Lee Chang Ming

Virtue & Virility presents a series images and quotes taken from various gay networking mobile apps. The quotes are taken from the “about me” sections where individuals can introduce themselves. The project seeks to highlight the intriguing ways gay men choose to present themselves in virtual space through photography and text, and looks at questions of masculinity, sexuality and self-portrayal.  

The self-portraits underscore perceived societal ideals of masculinity and sexual desirability; yet their anonymity also depicts an underlying concern of privacy and stigma for promiscuously found even within the domain of queer spaces.

By Lee Chang Ming

The work can either be read as a zine or opened up to reveal a single image on the reverse side. The work's two states conflict: presenting a dialogue between its physical structure and printed content.

By Khiev Kanel

Staircases looks at the White Building in Phonm Penh, Cambodia, which has since been demolished to make way for a casino. The seemingly unassuming site raises questions of capitalism, urban development, socioeconomics and geopolitics.

Against the backdrop of rapid development and influx of capital from foreign and local sources, Kanel Khiev’s photographs bear witness to the unrelenting changes and its effect on the place and its people.
